Clarifying "the enemy"

> Shouting at each other, and referring to 
> 'the enemy' is not constructive dialogue.

Sorry, I guess my allusion was too vague (and maybe too regional).  I was
quoting the comic strip character Pogo, who said "We have met the enemy,
and he is us."  The implied "us," in this case, being us librarians.
